Hi, my name is Mike. I live in Louisiana. Love camping, long walks on the beach and puppies
Seriously, I love camping. I'm starting a search for a fiberglass camper my VW can pull. I would love an Eriba Puck, but I know they're hard to find in the US. So I've been looking around the site and see lots of great little campers that look like they will fit the bill. My problem is I'm a total newbie at pulling trailers, total weight
, stopping and other things one may want to know a bit about before they attach to the vehicle and try to make it to the nearby National Forest.
I will peruse the site a bit more and probably ask some questions that have been answered a million times -sorry in advance.
My VW is a 1971 single cab with a freshly built 1776cc engine. The truck is rated a 1-ton. I don't know what that means in towing abilities,though.
I'm moving from a 1974 Westfalia to the truck so I can reduce my "herd" of vehicles.
Here's a pic of each vehicle (sorry for the blurry one). The truck actually has sides to the bed- they just aren't on yet.
Thanks for letting me pick your brains and possibly make a connection concerning a purchase!
